The areas we’re involved in are as diverse as the people we employ. We secure airports and embassies, we manage the cash cycle for leading retailers and banks, we safeguard sporting events and government buildings – the list goes on and on. In fact, our work touches people’s lives in nearly every area you can imagine.
In such a business, our employees thrive on exciting challenges and career opportunities you won’t find elsewhere. We’re a dynamic enterprise committed to empowering our people to unlock their full potential and build rewarding careers.

Children’s Services, a part of G4S, runs three purpose built Secure Training Centres (STCs) on behalf of the Youth Justice Board (YJB). Teams of committed people look after young people aged 12 to 17 years old who have been remanded or sentenced to periods of detention. We work closely with the Home Office, the Youth Justice Board for England and Wales and the Ministry of Justice, to ensure that our approach to regimes and designs reflect best practice in residential care to prevent re-offending.
Located near Rugby, Warwickshire, Rainsbrook STC opened in July 1999 and was originally designed to accommodate 40 young males. In 2002 the centre expanded to accommodate a total of 76 boys and girls. In October 2006, Rainsbrook STC opened Chadlington, a purpose built mother and baby unit to care for detained young mothers and their babies, as well as those in the final stages of pregnancy.
